    Hey, I just got a new macbook pro and installed Adium, but now whenever I add a buddy this annoying error pops up.

    "Could not add the buddy "enter screen name here" for an unknown reason"

    Any idea how to fix this? I tried reinstalling adium but that did nothing.

    Any help much appreciated!

    I wish that was the case but no. It does not add the buddy. Plus this happens every time I try to add someone, not just once in a blue moon.

    Anybody think they can solve this?

    Thanks

    Be more precise please. Are you trying to add contact in Adium? And what contact?

    Here is what I do exactly

    I'm on adium, I go to Contact, then click on "add contact".

    Then I enter a screen name, it can be anything, asdfsdf, my screen name Reel Big Austin or any screen name, and once I do that it says "Unable to add could not add the buddy for an unknown reason."

    So for example, lets say I'm adding the buddy dooboo

    This will pop up once I go to contact, then click on add contact and then click on the screen name. "Unable to add could not add the buddy dooboo for an unknown reason"

    Here I made a screen shot of it here http://www.uploadbank.com/public/pview/495/Picture 1.png

    That's about as descriptive as I can get unless you want me to show you exact steps.

    Thanks
